3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle pours a copper red rust color with aromas of subtle cherries and light wheat. Flavors are light cherreies, some wheat and a light tart aftertaste. A nice beer to enjoy in the heat and better than the sam addams cherry wheat.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance-The beer is served a deep amber color with a hint of ruby red mixed within. There is a small white head that sits atop the brew upon serving, with it having a light level of retention and fading to leave a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell- The aroma was somewhat what you would expect for a cherry wheat- cherry and wheat. Along with these aromas are some lighter smells of a caramel sweetness as well as a little bit of a grainy aroma.
Taste- The taste begins with a rather cherry sweet and lighter wheat and bready flavor. As the taste advances the sweet cherry lessens a bit but is replaced by a little bit of a caramel sweetness. All the while a little bit of graininess and some light yeast comes to the tongue. With some flavors of a little bit of toasted bread coming to the tongue, one is left with a rather sweet, but not cloying, cherry wheat flavor to be left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. For the style the combination of moderate body and carbonation are perfect as they really nicely complement both the fruit cherry and wheat flavors of the brew. Overall, rather well done.
Overall - A decent cherry wheat, but nothing overly exceptional. A good try, but overall, a Sam Adams cherry wheat is much better, at a comparable cost, and it just as easy to find.. so I would say go it instead.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a reddish-orange color. Cherry aroma and light cherry flavor that helps to distinguish this a bit from a straight wheat beer. Not as sour or full of esters as the typical wheat. The cherry is quite muted, but pleasant in its effect.

Good beer with some cherry flavor. it's not too overpowering though. I think it might be better with a little more cherry hint to it

Bottle. Dark brownish burgundy color. Natural cherry flavor, nothing artificial here. Aroma also has a natural cherry aroma. This is better then I originally thought.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours clear light amber with a white head. Cherry aroma, somewhat sugary. Light wheat and cherry flavors. as it warms, a tiny bit of banana pokes its heads in occasionally. Flavor’s decent, but it’s quite light.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was an odd beer. It’s reddish copper, so it does not look like a any sort of wheat ale. Not a huge amount of cherry aroma, either. Flavor is cough syrup, some bitter notes, and some graham cracker as it warms.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz, bottled April 2013. Clear orange-copper with a lasting quarter inch of creamy head. Mild but pleasant nose of toffee, banana, and a touch of cherry. The taste really has lots of fresh, tart pie-making cherries. Also a touch of spicy banana, caramel and some woody hops. Medium body is soft with average carbonation and enough acidic tartness to provide a fair balance. Not a huge fan of this brewery or the fruit style, but this one’s pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dirty amber color with a thick white that dissipates quickly. Aroma of cherry juice and light wheat. Very sweet at first but finishes real sharp. Tart cherries take over.
